push for the israeli/palestinean peace process. >> are there areas you can see the u.s. taking new action? >> well, again, of course it wasn't a foreign policy election. and that is always so in american elections. and i think you are probably a little bit right there because it is a little status quo. if we've seen anything from both president obama and, indeed, candidate mitt romney, there is a sense of retrenched america, a sense of america not wanting to project its power abroad. look, the wars are ending. that's a good thing. people are coming home. but also will america lead in some of the very tricky areas that still are out there? syria, we've been talking about for the last 20 months. both president obama and mitt romney said that assad has to go. if they don't do anything about that, it makes america look a little bit weak. i think that will be a big question. and what to do about iran, that will be a huge challenge and how to meet the challenge of a rising china, also going through its leadership change this week. >> always a treat to get to talk to you. great to see you
